The worst president in history in which country? Anywhere in the world?
I see that you're from New York. You're not limiting your answers to just presidents of the United States, are you?
Man from Modesto...what in the world?
Anywho, to answer the question, the worst president in the United States has to be George W. Bush. I know that might be a little biased, but I think Clinton left the US in a pretty great state, and Mr Bush just came along and destroyed everything Clinton had tried to fix. Sure, there were some events that Bush couldn't predict, and sure he made mistakes, the same as all presidents. However some of his mistakes are just to grave to ignore.
I think the little Bush would have to be a contender. He started a needless and expensive war with Iraq without good justification, was divisive, obviously unconcerned about parts of the country that usually vote democratic; take for example New Orleans during Katrina, or California during the Enron manufactured energy crisis of 2001.
Well, if you're looking for a large number of perspectives, you might search "Best U.S. Presidents" at Wikipedia. There's a fascinating article on a number of surveys that have been taken by political experts and scholars both here and abroad. Bush the Younger ends up at around 38th of 43 in almost every one of them, with only those presidents who died in office ranking lower.
The current president is calculated as coming in either 15th or 8th, depending on the survey, if one were to consider only his accomplishments at the time the article was written. It's quite interesting.
When I read this I considered the whole world and it has to be Robert Mugabe. No doubt someone worse will come along but they're not here just yet.
Are you forgetting Carter? The one term peanut farmer who botched rescuing the Iran hostages? He was the WORST plus they left the White House in shambles. Thank God for Nancy Reagan and her rich pals who donated everything to refurbish the home to its glory.
Harry S Truman; he should have never been president. He inherited a world empire and had no idea what to do with it other than to make war on the bankrupt and decimated Russians.
In my opinion all Presidents deserve our undivided respect. We need to remember 911 and the terrible times when we needed to be united.NOT a cool question.
If this question is open to presidents outside of the US then I would have to say that it is Marcos for the Philippines. Thousands of reported human rights abuses, corruption to the high levels, billion of pesos stashed in Swiss bank accounts, extremely poor economy, the list goes on.
Are we talking about the worst president at the time of his presidency? Or are we talking about looking back? Because FDR was arguably the best president in the history of the country at the time of his presidency, however, now, I would have to say all the programs he enacted..well not all, but a good chunk are all outdated and bankrupt, depleting our finances, so he would be the worst president in my opinion.
Two of them sucked big time! Andrew Jackson was a completely horrible President! He cared nothing for the Native Americans and plowed his way into the west at their expense, offering them diseased blankets and taking land that did not belong to the US.
Then...George W Bush was the other....he was a complete nincompoop. Totally inept and a puppet of Dick Cheney's.Total imbecile.
